Omerta is based on terrorist Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh. Rajkummar Rao plays him.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Omerta 3.5 stars out of 5. "The well-crafted, fast-paced Omerta, much like Hansal Mehta's Shahid and Aligarh, focuses on a man who stands apart from the crowd. Rajkummar Rao gives the film its teeth with a pitch-perfect performance. He slips into the skin of Omar with chilling conviction," he wrote.
Omerta is Rajkummar Rao's fourth film with Hansal Mehta. They have previously made Shahid, CityLights and Aligarh.
Omerta opened at the box office with Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor's 102 Not Out (which has made over Rs 9 crore) and Hollywood film Avengers: Infinity War has given both the films a tough competition.
Of making a film like Omerta, Hansal Mehta earlier said, "I want to leave the viewer with a sense of awe, disgust, hate, surprise and let them examine the ramifications of these events on their lives today. But that is the burden of truth - it is uncomfortable and it must be faced."
